    Loved the episode, just commenting to say that the "blue thing" is literally just an aesthetic thing, you can take the end of the pen off and put the ring in so it has a little line between the handle and end, also you get blue, green, red and black rings. Also the metal thing around it is like clippers to take the nib out when it gets worn down.

    3.04 that gave me like a vision for the greatest free roaming game. i imagined the game would be set in like 500 years in the furutre and it is on a planet run my gangsters and in this point in time the gansters are like Jabba the hut and they make money off illegal mech fights , as seen in the photo prior

    Aw Jay should not think like that at all. I wonder if he knows about skill share. Since people these days concern for drawing style. Their drawing skills is the reason many artists level up. However, it will take practice if they want to get better drawing anything.

    In order to practice properly is to re draw your mistakes over un doing every single mistake an artist makes. Skillshare is an amazing website. And I think Jay should check that website out, if he feels that his painting and drawing skills are not good enough. When he can full fill his goals.

    How can you buy so much PC's, computer, etc …?

  9. Hello! I am a student who is interested in drawing, photography and video editing. I wondering if I should get a 2 in 1 laptop like Hp Specter x360 , Surface book etc.. Or a powerful laptop with good graphics and a drawing tablet (cus I already have a small Wacom Intuos Draw, potentially getting a better one)?

    Ps: I am new to art, would have to keep using it for years and I travel around a lot, but I don't mind carrying some extra weight . Thank

    Hi Dave, nice videos man! I'm buying a new Laptop and would like to do 2D illustrations for a book I'm writing for my daughter. I don't know much about computers, but I'm trying to gather information so that I can choose the best laptop, within my budget (1450€ = about 1700$). So far, the advice I got was to get something with an IPS screen (for better colour reproduction). Could you tell me if this laptop (a CLEVO) is good enough:

    Screen: 17'3 1920*1080 AUO B173HAN03.0 144Hz IPS (NTSC 72% sRGB 92% and AdobeRGB 60%)
    Graphics Cards: Intel 630 + GeForce GTX 1060
    8GB DDR4 2400MHZ – G.SKILL / CRUCIAL (1X8GB; can upgrade up to 32GB whenever I can, if needed)
    3 Year Warranty

    Can you tell me if I need something with a higher percentage of colour reproduction?

  12. Fragza
